- Trevor Noah took to his talk show to joke about current first lady, Melania Trump, casting her ballot in Florida
- The comedian poked fun at Melania waiting until Election Day to cast her in-person ballot, questioning whether she voted for her husband Donald Trump
- Trevor forms part of a large number of TV hosts attempting to find humour in the current state of the closely-contested American election
Trevor Noah tweeted a segment of The Daily Show in which he poked fun at the current first lady, Melania Trump. The comedian joked about whether or not Melania would have voted for her husband, Donald Trump, as she cast her ballot.
Melania cast her vote in Florida and opted for an in-person ballot as opposed to an early vote or mail-in ballot. Trevor joked about the hilarity of Melania deciding whether to vote for the man she is married to or not.
The comedian did an impression of the Slovenian-born Melania and discussed how funny it would be if she had been deciding between the two candidates and choosing to vote at the last opportunity.
Trevor also jokingly talked about whether or not Melania would have voted for Trump if he gave her the coronavirus.
Trevor joins a legion of commentators and talk show hosts attempting to lighten the mood in an incredibly nail-biting presidential race.
Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle made history after becoming the first member of the British royal family to vote in the US election. A source close to the Duchess told People Magazine that Meghan was voting in the election but it was not clear if she cast her ballot early or voted locally near her county of Santa Barbara, California.
Since the mother of one made her return to the US, she has been very vocal and has always encouraged people to come out on vote during the 2020 general election.
The royal has been very outspoken and revealed in August that she did intend on casting a ballot.
Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex officially stepped down from their royal duties early in the year. The two bid their fans and followers farewell through their official Instagram account on Tuesday, March 31. In the post seen by Briefly.co.za, Harry and Meghan assured fans they may not be seen in public but would keep working behind the scenes in a bid to better the lives of others.
''As we all find the part we are to play in this global shift and changing of habits, we are focusing this new chapter to understand how we can best contribute. While you may not see us here, the work continues. Thank you to this community for the support, the inspiration and the shared commitment to the good in the world. We look forward to reconnecting with you soon. You have been great! Until then, please take good care of yourselves, and of one another,'' their post read in part.
The latest development came about four months after the couple disclosed their intentions to relinquish their royal status. The lovebirds shocked the world in January after announcing they intended to step back from the royal family, split their time between the United Kingdom and North America and start paying their own bills.
